Hello,

I wanna suggest an identifier to return how much aliases are in a "test.mrc" .

e.g: $isalias(test.mrc).total or $alias(test.mrc).total

NOTE: I don't know if there is an way to do this but an alias will be helpfull

I'm at work now (on break), so I can't test this, but it seems to me that a simple (pardon the pun) alias that calls the /filter command and returns the results from $filtered would work just fine.

RusselB is right about the use of filter:
Code:
alias find {
  var %file = $$1
  window -h @-
  filter -fw %file @- *alias* 
  echo -a $iif($calc($filtered -2) > 1,$v1 matches,$v1 match) found in %file
  close -@-
}
Usage:
Code:
/find test.mrc


If you have the remote files included in another folder, you may need to include the path to it. The code will check the file you search for in mirc directory.

I've changed the invisible window name to "-" and the alias trigger to find and aliases to match... because with aliases the filter may count it as an alias.

Code:
alias messup_count {
  echo -a hello blahaliasblah
  alias -r moo
}


Your wildcard match is way too general. A regular expression like /^\s*\/*[!\.]*alias\s+(-l|[^-])/ should do (some quick testing has given correct results).

Your alias will match 5 times (3, if you subtract)

Using regex is a better choice.

Edit:

Using starbucks_mafia regex:

Code:
alias find {
  var %file = $scriptdir $+ $$1
  window -h @-
  filter -gfw %file @- /^\s*\/*[!\.]*alias\s+(-l|[^-])/
  echo -sc info * There are $iif($filtered > 1,$v1 matches,$v1 match) found in %file
  close -@-
}

Thanks to starbucks_mafia and Crinul. I didn't think of using regex in the first place. I agree with you two completely.

Edit - lol Crinul beat me to it.

Crinul, I think the $filtered still needs to be subtracted by one because of the alias find may get filtered as a count.

I mean, if you check the aliases in the same file where the alias is installed...

No, because that's not the real number of aliases. (I think alias find should be included).

Yes, it's included. The regex method works like a charm. Thanks you two, once again, for the improvement upon the example provided.

Good work the code is working correctly! but it will be good to add in mirc by default!

Instead of using a window, you could use the -k switch with /noop
Also, what about ini files?


I haven't extensively tested it but here's my version of it:
Code:
alias Aliases {
  if (!$isfile($1-)) { return 0 }
  var %m = $iif(*.ini iswm $1-,/^n\d+=\s*\/*alias\b/i,/^\s*\/*alias\b/i)
  filter -fkg $qt($1-) noop %m
  return $filtered
}

What about the .mrc extension? An alias can be made into a remote file.

If the specified file is an Ini mine uses the follow regex:
/^n\d+=\s*\/*alias\b/i

It it doesn't end with .Ini it uses:
/^\s*\/*alias\b/i

Did you edit your post, Froggie? It didn't look like that the last time I saw it. :P At any rate, nice work on the regex.

Nope, I didn't edit it. If I did, I would have also fixed all the grammar/spelling mistakes as well(lol). But just for the sake of doing it, here's an even shorter version:
Code:
alias Aliases {
  if (!$isfile($1-)) { return 0 }
  filter -fkg $qt($1-) noop /^ $+ $iif(*.ini iswm $1-,n\d+=) $+ \s*alias(?: |$)/i               
  return $filtered
}

Ok, now that I'm done editing things here, let me make a note. All the snippets presented here have a flaw, though not MAJOR it's still a flaw; they ALL count aliases commented out with /**/

For the sake of speed and simplicity, even though I realized the bug above, I did it this way. If you'd like a version that DOESN'T count those then hit me back and I might get around to it.

Using your alias:
1) * No such identifier: $noop (use other alias for noop $1-??)
2) Result is 2


Code:
filter -fkg <filename> !noop /^ $+ $iif(*.ini iswm $1-,n\d+=) $+ \s*\/*[!\.]*alias\s+(-l|[^-])/i


!noop prevents mIRC from displaying the * No such identifier message (is it like ~ or a bug?)

Right you are.

mIRC 6.35, 7.17, 7.18

Do you have 'Identifier Warning' off?

Not sure what you mean, to be honest.

Wait, you said it works if you specify "!noop" instead of "noop"? Then I do believe you have an alias that has overwritten mIRC's built in /noop Commmand. To get around this I edited my last bit of code so it calls mIRC's built-in /noop instead.

No, I don't.

Open the script editor (Alt+R), then in the Options menu, click 'Identifier Warning'.

What exactly do the "Identifier warning" on the script editor?

noop is a built-in command and is not an identifier. The identifier warning has nothing to do with it. Even with it enabled, you should not get a warning about noop if you didn't have $ in front of it. There should not be a $ in front of noop. You can verify this by typing the following in mIRC's edit line-

//noop echo -a test

You should not receive any kind of message or echo because noop prevents the display.

It just tells you if you used an identifier that isn't valid. For example, if you type:

//echo -a This is a fake identifier: $fake

With the option enabled, you will receive an error about that being an invalid identifier. If the option is disabled, it will be evaluate to $null and you'll see:

This is a fake identifier:

(It will just not show anything for the identifier)

You mean something like this?

//var %t $noop(echo -a test) | %t

* No such identifier: $noop

Yes, that will give you an error, but you should not try to use noop as an identifier. It is a command as I stated.

General reply.

You can read jaytea's post to understand why using noop with filter is a problem, and it's not about /!noop at all
$noop() doesn't exist, so if you have the identifier warning on, mirc will report an error, this is the same for any non existing alias, he could have used "thidoesnotexist", when you don't have that warning on, any non existing identifier returns $null.

Quote:
!noop prevents mIRC from displaying the * No such identifier message (is it like ~ or a bug?)
/!command only search for the builtin command and $~ident only call the
built in identifier, so as a side effect, it won't produce the error if you have the warning on.

Jaytea's post also describe the fastest way to use filter to get $filtered filled, it's to use "~~" as an alias.

Ok here is my alias after editions:

Code:
alias Aliases {
  if ($isid && $0 == 1) && ($script($1-)) { 
    filter -fkg $qt($v1) ~~ /^ $+ $iif(*.ini iswm $v1,n\d+=) $+ alias [^\x20]+ [^\x20]+/i               
    return $filtered
  }
}
